The finalists for each category are now posted. Because we have so many slideshows, it may be easier to navigate by clicking on one of the links below and go directly to the dedicated page for each.
I have also installed the voting modules for each category. Please vote once on each of your favorites, the total score of the viewers poll will count as 1 Judge's score. Not enough to win a category, but definitely enough to be a tie breaker (and with over 72 places (12x6) this has, can and will happen - the viewer's poll makes a big difference.
The viewer polls will be open for at least one week, at which time Ill be collecting the Judge's scorecards. It usually takes a couple days, but we typically have everything shortly after. I would expect to announce the winners some time in the first or second week of Feb.
Here are the direct links to each category:
2012 Portrait Finalists
2012 Landscape Finalists
2012 Macro Finalists
2012 Animal Finalists
2012 Abstract Finalists
2012 Sports Finalists
You will find a polling module below each slideshow, with each voting circle in the same order as the slideshow itself. Thanks for your help!
